Australians are getting into the urban emergency preparedness mindset — officially, that is. If you can survive in the outback, you probably can survive anywhere. Still, it’s good to know that the City of Sydney just launched a campaign to help individuals and businesses learn how to be better prepared and more confident in dealing with emergencies.
Letâ€™s Get Ready Sydney is an information resource and education campaign prepared by the City of Sydney to help the community prepare for a possible emergency in the City of Sydney Local Government Area. Emergency agencies and government departments are undertaking thorough planning to ensure that the Sydney City area is ready to respond should an emergency cause widespread disruption in the area.
The website has information for individuals and businesses (including building owners) who work and / or live in Sydney, as well as for visitors to the city.
The site also offers a downloadable pocket guide in PDF format, available in two languages : English and Chinese (traditional and simplified).
